|Estate pub with no future as it serves no choice of beer and is dirty, was a good pub in the 60s suspect it still has same decor. |

|One pump, Adnam's at £2.90, which was off. I had a bottle of Courage Light, the last it seems, for £1.60. There were a few bits of carpet and rows of benches all desperately in need of re-upholstering. The glass was filthy. The walls were filthy and streaked with brown drips. Worst of all were the punters who the management have got to sort out. There were a load at the pool table dressed in Nike tops, tracksuits and other sports wear. I have never seen a group of people less likely to break in to a run. Every other word was 'F*** this' and F*** that'. These scum had driven to the pub as I saw two go to different cars. Who are they? Where do they come from? Presumably, this is the last pub in Ipswich that will let them in. It was like being in the foyer of a bail hostel. There is a function room and small garden, though I would suggest Social Services need to get involved if any children are brought in to this hole. It has been bad for years, but I did not imagine it would be this awful. I haven't paid a visit to what was my local pub in 10 years or so. When a few of my friends suggested going there five years ago they left after less than a minute while I was drawing money out from the nearby garage so I didn't actually step inside. How wise they were. For what it's worth, it apparently serves breakfast from 0700. |
Don't go anywhere near this place. The Kingfisher is half a mile away.

|This pub is a typical estate pub from the 1960s. The beer was terrible, warm and overpriced. Won't be going back here again.|
